Funds assist WA’s young artists

05 Jul 2013

Young musicians and dancers are among the recipients of the latest round of State Government grants for young people and the arts.

Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said funds of more than $156,000 had been awarded to young people under the age of 26 through the Department of Culture and the Arts.

“The breadth of funding is wide with a variety of grants being awarded to young people to develop new skills, create new works and to expand their markets and profile,” he said.

“For example, several young WA string players will be tutored by a renowned violinist, while dance students from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts will visit Beijing, China.

“Another excellent example of the creativity supported by these grants is a project involving young people in Carnarvon working on a hip hop track and video.”

In addition, Rebecca Smith, of Wembley, has been awarded the 2013 Young People and the Arts International Scholarship, an annual $30,000 scholarship for an outstanding young artists or arts worker (aged 29 years or under) to train at an overseas institution.

“I would like to congratulate Rebecca on receiving the scholarship which she will use to study music composition at the Manhattan School of Music in New York,” Mr Day said.
